Summer Share #20 of 22: 10/15+10/17 Steve's Birthday

by Erin and Steve on 10/12/19

Just so everyone knows, it's Steve's Birthday on Tuesday the 15th. We are also still renewing shares for the 2020 season for current members until the end of the month (which is also the end of this year's Summer share :0). So make sure to bring your payment. If you were unable to print out a form we have plenty in the share room for you to use. Also bring any questions you have about signing up, too. Steve has been in the share room a lot lately because I am still getting better from my bout with bronchitis. My allergies are severe this year and are adding to the problems, so I'll be in and out again this week.
We are spending our time still harvesting, harvesting, harvesting. We are bringing in the weekly harvests for the Summer Shares, plus checking off bulk harvests for the Winter Share. This past week we got the last of the sweet potatoes out of the ground, did the majority of the carrot harvest (over 2500lbs) and got our garlic in the ground. It's a lot to do, with smaller tasks having to get done when we are able. Up next is the rest of the potatoes. Wish us luck.
As for the share this week, it will include: sweet potatoes, winter squashes, potatoes, carrots, beets, cauliflower, salad radishes and turnips, peppers, eggplant, fennel, cabbage, kohlrabi, bok choy, kale, scallions, head lettuce, spinach, salad greens, and brussels sprouts!
The fruit share will include apples and pears.
